Study type Research


This course is for graduates and postgraduates wanting to further develop their understanding of a particular subject and carry out research that will lead to a PhD.

We provide comprehensive research training through our MRes Business. We also provide support from a supervisory team in areas linked to all our research special interest groups (SIGs).

Your supervisory team includes a director of studies and one or more second supervisors with expertise and interest in your research area. However, you do much of the work for a research degree on your own and you need the initiative, self-drive and motivation to finish a course of research extending over several years.

Achieving a PhD shows your ability to carry out academic research that you can defend as being methodologically justifiable and an original contribution to academic knowledge. It is your demonstration of this ability that determines your suitability for the award.

A doctorate can lead to career advancement in public, private or voluntary organisations, academia or consultancies.

Doctor of Philosophy - PhD
